Today (Tuesday) at 5 p.m. a Police Review Commission subcommittee will take its first look at recommendations from the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, the organization that reviewed how Berkeley Police deal with their drug evidence.
The police chief requested the report after former Berkeley Police Sergeant Cary Kent pleaded guilty to stealing drugs from the locked evidence vault he was supposed to be guarding.
This will be the PRC’s first look at the commission report. Andrea Prichett of Copwatch lauded the report that recommends separating those that guard the evidence from the police who collect it.
“I’m still interested in talking about the failure of the department administration” in the Kent case, said Prichett, who will sit with PRC members on the subcommittee.
The meeting will be held at 1947 Center St., third floor, Tupelo Conference Room.
